AL though not really linux related. My pc randomly hard locks. Moslty in games and hi resourse applications. I find theirs some slugishness in games. then out of no where hard locks. with a forever system beep. Whats strange is when booted into slackware. (i just use win xp pro for gaming) the systems fine. left audacious running music. xine running vids for 2 days with no lockup. also running compiz-fusion. So strange. memtest86 isnt picking up bad ram. My video card isn't over heating same with the cpu. and i cant see any visual sign of bad caps. Possibly my PS?
